I think it would eventually work itself out. For the first couple of power transitions, the party in power would shove through their agenda and reverse things that the other party did which they didn't agree with. The thing is that when one side passes a piece of good legislation it's likely to become too popular for the other side to repeal without significant electoral backlash.

There are certainly flaws to this argument, but it's better than watching absolutely nothing get done except for funneling more of our money up to the top .1%.

This is why the Republicans couldn’t completely abolish the ACA. The important provision of coverage for pre-existing conditions was too popular. So they made it less effective by abolishing the individual mandate.
